The gorgeous 209-foot expedition yacht La Pinta is home away from home during 5- and 7-day La Pinta Galapagos Cruises. Enjoy a sophisticated, upscale travel experience aboard the 48-guest expedition yacht, with 24 cabins known to be some of the largest in the Galapagos. Spacious and family friendly, La Pinta is the result of generations of experience and thoughtfulness by captains, expedition leaders, hotel managers and guests combined.
